Hands down this was the best tour I have ever been on. Isaac the guide was brilliant, a true highlight of the trip. The elephant walk at Buffelsdrift was one of the best activities I have ever done. I opted for the 4 star accommodation which was absolutely stunning (esp. Dover bay guesthouse).

We don't usually make organized tour, but this one was really fantastic! In five days we cover a lot of ground and were able to see much more of South Africa than it would be possible on our own. Xenny, our guide, was fun and at the same time very professional and punctual. The tour was really above our expectations and we will highly recommend it to our friends and relatives.

This trip was first rate in every respect. The tour included plenty of activity, as well as spectacular viewing of animals and terrain. Most especially, our guide was as good as any I have ever had. He was knowledgeable, humorous, patient, and very concerned for all members of the party, their comfort, and enjoyment. Across the board I cannot imagine any aspect of this trip that I would have changed. Thank you for a wonderful South Africa experience!

The 5 day Garden Tour was wonderful. Our multi-national, multi-age tour group meshed well, was relaxed and fun all the way through. The accommodations were excellent with lovely rooms and terrific food. Our phenomenal tour guide, Maudi, was organized, knowledgeable, patient and fun. I feel very fortunate to have had his expertise in the whole process. I can't imagine how the tour could have been managed in a more professional manner. Each experience from observing the animals, viewing such beautiful landscapes and making new friends was terrific. Overall, the trip to South Africa was spectacular.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2017

The trip was amazing and a great way to see loads of places in a short space of time my friend tells me we would have driven over 2000km on the round trip!. It was all extremely well-organised, including visits to lots of well-known places along the route as well as a few added extras.

The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable- it was clear that my particular driver there were 3 minibuses doing the same trip was well-known and well-loved and respected at places we stopped along the way. The minibus was clean and comfortable and our guide was really accommodating of all of us, whether it was supporting dietary requirements, organising drop-offs, stopping for toilet breaks on request, organising meals both those included in the trip and those that were not or efficiently organising the included and additional activities.

I would recommend them to anyone who wants a quick, convenient and quite personal way to see parts of South Africa!

Definitely do this. This tour is jam packed with lots of various activities! I loved it and I got to see a huge chunk of South Africa. From Ziplining, to Bungy jumping, to riding ostriches, walking lions, I could go on and on. Must do!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2017

Amazing experience with a really great guide. It was exciting, adventurous and with a diversity of experiences. Highly recommend it


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

Truly a fantastic experience! A trip along the Garden Route is always something special, I'm told, but the locations and activities really sell this one. From walking with elephants and surfing J-Bay to sunrise safaris and climbing in caves, the stops are as varied as they are enjoyable. Our guide, Handre Fouche Klip, was the star of the show, always ready with impressive knowledge, helpful advice, and little extras along the way. He even went so far as to rearrange the itinerary so that some of our group could spend more time at Cango, allowing us to go and stroke the cheetahs.

I'm told that the tour is slightly different each time, although the major stops stay the same, and if my tour was representative of the standard then I cannot recommend this highly enough.

We had a wonderful tour and our tour guide GG is the best. He made sure everything is in order always. I recommend this tour especially for first time in South Africa.
